There were very few guest during our stay because of the covid scare. However, all the staff are very accommodating, very welcoming and friendly. Their service is heartfelt. They allowed us to check in early. We arrived at 10am and seems that our room is already waiting for us. They upgraded us from standard to a deluxe room which we really appreciate. Our breakfast was plated because of very few guest but the plate was bountiful. The location is also good. Very near to willy's rock which i must say the most beautiful sand and spot at station 1. The room is very clean(with small air purifier). The c.r. is clean with hot and cold rain shower. We enjoyed our stay and we will definitely come back here. Thank you to all the staff.

Just spent 5 nights at this wonderful hotel, all the staff we’re absolutely fantastic Rooms are spotless very comfortable beds and pillows Large fridge in room with tea/coffee making facilities and great air conditioning Fantastic selection for breakfast with hot and cold food available Nicely tucked away from the busy road so very quiet You can walk to the beautiful white sandy beach in under 5 minutes on station 1 and enjoy a lovely walk to the popular and busy station 2 in 10 minutes Plenty of bars/restaurants and shops and also a nice low cost place to get your laundry done before you head home just minutes away Can highly recommend the Pig Out bistro 5 minutes walk away Beach towels are available to hire for 300 peso deposit per towel from the reception Great price with good location all in all can highly recommend

We spent 3Nights and 4 days in Boracay as my wife and I were guests at a wedding at the Shangrila Boracay. I have been to Boracay many times ,and decided to try to this relatively new hotel because of the positive reviews here at trip advisor. I corresponded with the Manager thru messenger from their Official FB page and after Lee answered all my questions decided to book the hotel. I t was the best decision I made for the trip. All the good reviews were true! We have our 1 year old baby with us. If the kid could talk,he would also recommend this hotel! Kudos to Lee and all the staff,I mean all. The owners hit the jackpot with their fine staff!Clean ,comfy rooms. Rest rooms and location! Station 1, behind the Catholic Church and Brgy Balabag Community Center and Basketball court!3 minute walk to the beach. very near Andoks manok restaurant and 7-11.

For the price I paid I think this accommodation was wonderful. It’s very close to the beach and has no passing traffic. The staff are very friendly with a special mention to the security guard (I forget his name, apologies) who was always helpful and friendly
